The Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office (BPTO) has just published a notification informing that the limit of 800 Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) requests to be accepted for 2023 has reached its limit, thus additional PPH requests will no longer be accepted. For the next year, the BPTO is expected to open a new phase of the program with a new limit for PPH requests.

The participation limit complies with the provisions of Article 5th (V) of Ordinance No. 78, of December 16, 2022, that institutes rules for the phase IV of the PPH Pilot Project in Brazil.

In this fourth phase of the program, the average examination time was of 3 months from the date of the PPH request, and the allowance rate was 94.5%. The IPC classifications with the highest number of requests were H (Electricity), A (Human Necessities) and C (Chemistry; Metallurgy), respectively.
